Creating a service from an application

Creating a service from an application

I have Adobe Distiller installed on my NT server computer and I want to set it up to be a service, that is, I want it to be running whenever the computer is booted. Anyone know where I can find the information on how to do this?

RE: Creating a service from an application

I don't know any thing about Adobe Distiller, but I have installed Lotus Notes on an NT server as a service. The option to install as a service is presented by the Lotus setup program. Therefore, check the Adobe Distiller installation and see if there is an option to install it as a service. I hope this is of some use to you.

RE: Creating a service from an application

There is a utility in the NT 4.0 Resource Kit that will allow you to confiure applications as services. The name of the utility is SRVANY.EXE. Good luck.

RE: Creating a service from an application

Thank you. I have the Resource Kit and I will look it up.
